A little something different today. I wanted to start off saying Thanks to The Prep Guy for motivating me to do this. Whilst reading his Very poignant post: I wondered why I had never written about this.
So Thanks Syed Sohail
So Mylipaddiction.com became a blog in late February 2015. I had been blogging on my now static site catforsley.com.
Those posts are searchable but not obvious anymore. I sometimes look back at them for inspiration.
There- I was “blogging” prose, music, art – and it was a place where I would just WRITE.
Some of You may or may not know (I don’t know)! that I have been an artist all of my life. I will not write my life story as that would be crazy long and full of twists and turns- ha!
My whole life has been intertwined with all arts and humanities. Let’s rewind to 2015 though. One day I may go further back! At that time my son was 11, I was in a band called As City Rumbles Underneath (dream pop and still very active- hello music licensing and digital downloads).
I have worked on music all of my life. I started on piano and voice at a very young age and the passion grew and grew. I have done so many cds – honestly at this point I don’t even want to count.
Here are a few songs that I wrote when I was writing alone and in a phase where I considered myself a Love Activist. Funny right! I am still the same woman I just don’t give myself a title. I just share Love and will always . These were written on a little macbook and still carry a lot of memories for me.
I started my everything is beautiful blog because as a little girl I was immersed in fashion and beauty. My one and only grandmother put me on the runway at 4 years in Montreal. She put the models looks together at Shows all over the world. Her title was Fashion Coordinator. I miss Her dearly but she is with me every single day – in spirit.
-Music – Fashion – Beauty -Art-
all go hand in hand
This is obvious
I wanted more in February 2015. I had always loved lipstick and thought about a creating a brand. Hello -the name of my blog came very easily to me and I could not believe the domain had not been taken.
So It started as a tiny idea to create a brand of lipstick but evolved into a blog. The all of everything in beauty fascinates me and I am super grateful for all the amazing experiences thus far. I wanted to lend my passion to writing about a World I Love so much. The passion grew and grew. I started with lipstick and skincare and I feel like this blog has changed the way I look at things.
It’s pretty amazing.
I’ve added style and a bit of lifestyle and I guess the best way I can describe Life right now is Freedom to be all of me. Like when I was that tiny kid with my grandmother.
There’s the podcast too but maybe that’s for another day!
I can’t believe my blog will be 3 years old next year
Perpetually excited and wishing you a beautiful day
